In the present context we want to give the method of synthesis of Schiffbase and their corresponding metal complexes, which further react with adipoyl chloride to produce the desired polyesters [PESB–M(II)] by the polycondensation process. The above
chemistry and chemical technology [ 1 – 4 ]. d-Block metal Schiffbase complexes are powerful homogeneous catalysts in the oxidation of organic compounds by various oxygen atom donors such as NaClO, H 2 O 2 , TBHP and PhIO [ 5 – 7 ]. These complexes have
The complexes of α-alanine-salicylal Schiff base of magnesium (α-ASSM), β-alanine-salicylal Schiff base of magnesium (β-ASSM)
and taurine-salicylal Schiff base of magnesium (TSSM) were synthesized. The formulae of the complexes are Mg[OC6H4CHNCH(CH3)COO]·2H2O, Mg[OC6H4CHNCH2CH2COO]·2H2O and Mg[OC6H4CHNCH2CH2SO3]·2H2O. The crystal structure belongs to orthorhombic system with the lattice parameters: a=1.6954 nm, b=2.0873 nm and c=2.3037 nm for the β-ASSM, to orthorhombic system with the lattice parameters: a=1.5586 nm, b=1.8510 nm and c=2.6240 nm for the β-ASSM, to monoclinic system with the lattice parameters: a=1.3232 nm, b=1.4960 nm, c=2.1543 nm and β=98.04° for the TSSM, respectively. The results of the thermal decomposition processes and infrared spectra
of the complexes show that the complexes may possess different coordination structures.

Trifluoromethoxy functionalized copper(II) Schiff base complexes N,N′-bis(5-trifluoromethoxysalicylaldehyde)cyclohexanediiminatodiaquacopper(II) and N,N′-bis(5-trifluoromethoxysalicylaldehyde)phenylenediiminatocopper(II) were synthesized and characterized. Thermal decompositions
of the synthesized complexes were studied by thermogravimetry in order to evaluate their thermal stability and thermal decomposition
pathways. Three similar decomposition steps occurred for the two copper complexes. Mass losses and evolved gasses were characterized
by TG/DTA-MS. Kinetic parameters were calculated and the results showed that the values obtained are comparable.

A large number of nickel(II) and copper(II) complexes with salicylaldehyde Schiff-base ligands have been extensively studied for their interesting structural [ 1 – 7 ] application and properties [ 8 – 14
Schiffbase complexes of transition metals are of particular interest to inorganic chemists because of their structural, spectral and chemical properties are often strongly dependant on the nature of the ligand

Metal complexes of Schiff base derived from
2-furancarboxaldehyde and 2-aminobenzoic acid (HL) are reported and characterized
based on elemental analyses, IR, 1H NMR, UV-Vis,
solid reflectance, magnetic moment, molar conductance and thermal analysis.
The ligand dissociation as well as the metal-ligand stability constants have
been calculated pH-metrically at 25C and ionic strength μ=0.1 (1 M
NaCl). The complexes are found to have the formulae [M(HL)2](X)nyH2O
(where M=Fe(III) (X=Cl, n=3, y=4), Co(II)

The coordination chain polymers of La(III), Ce(III), Pr(III), Nd(III) and Sm(III) with N,N’-di(o-thiophenyl)terephthalaldehydediimine have been prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, magnetic measurements, infrared spectra, reflectance spectra and thermogravimetric analysis. A coordination number
of seven around the metal ion is suggested. The thermal decompositions of the coordination polymers have been studied. The
kinetic parameters have been calculated using Freeman-Carroll method. The thermodynamic activation parameters such as entropy
(S*), preexponential factor (A), enthalpy (H*) and free energy of the decomposition (G*) have been evaluated.

The biological activity of a kind of hetero-bimetallic Schiff-base complex was studied using Escherichia coli (E. coli) cell as the target. By microcalorimetry, the difference of anti-bacterial activity between the binuclear Schiff-base and
the ligand was determined and analyzed. To analyze the inhibition of the bacterial growth internally, the E. coli cells grown in the presence of hetero-bimetallic Schiff-base complex were observed by scanning electron microscopy. The images
in high resolution revealed the damage of outer cell membrane caused the inhibitory effect on E. coli. Inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry results proved the absorption of the complex by cells, which confirmed the
interaction between the Schiff-base and biological macromolecule.
